Whatever one may think of Donald Trump or the circumstances of last year’s election or even the bitterness of this nation’s partisan divide, it ought to be easy to condemn the events of Jan. 6 and to support a broad inquiry into what happened and how to prevent it from happening again. Sadly…

President Donald Trump was rightly castigated when he said that libel laws should be changed to make it harder to criticize public figures. Trump’s suggestion wasn’t just self-serving; it smacked of hypocrisy coming from a man who made wild accusations about his critics and political opponents.

The Indiana Supreme Court is helping launch a full fledged assault on government transparency, and we need to push back and speak up in order to keep our democracy from falling into darkness.

After losing the presidency and the Senate thanks to Donald Trump’s disastrous management of COVID, Republicans look determined to try to ascend again in Washington by parroting his stolen election lies. If you can’t snap out of a slumber, it seems, the second best thing is to dive back into…

It would be a hard slog for President Joe Biden to persuade Congress to abolish the federal death penalty as he promised, but the least he could do is to stop enforcing it. To the contrary, his Department of Justice is picking up where President Donald Trump’s left off in pushing for the exe…

It’s not just mania about college hoops that puts the “madness” in March Madness. Think about the money behind NCAA basketball. John Calipari, coach of perennial powerhouse University of Kentucky, makes $8 million a year. Duke’s famed Mike Krzyzewski makes $7 million. Closer to home, Univers…

Many of President Joe Biden’s critics, and a few of his friends, feared he would not be able to handle the presidential press conference.

It wasn’t that long ago that people were clamoring for COVID-19 vaccines, with some going as far as lying about their age to secure the much-in-demand but not readily available shots – back when they were meted out by age, oldest first. Now the country is in a whole other, opposite dilemma w…

The future of democracy is in the hands of West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin, alleged Democrat. His refusal to support his party’s main voting rights bill or help abolish the Senate filibuster could mark him in history, if anyone remains free to write it, as having dealt the decisive blow to re…

The Jan. 6 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol will be remembered as one of the darkest days in the country’s history, a day when democracy was threatened by its citizens. We cannot erase the events of that day, but we must do everything possible to ensure it doesn’t happen again.

Indiana’s next two-year, $37 billion state budget accelerates opportunities for all Hoosiers – and in an unprecedented way. During the height of the worldwide pandemic, Indiana’s fiscal health proved its resiliency and our economic future is brighter than ever before. This legislative sessio…

The Biden administration’s decision to begin sharing U.S.-authorized COVID-19 vaccines with the rest of the world is welcome news. Now coronavirus czar Jeff Zients, who will lead U.S. efforts to fight the pandemic abroad, must swiftly craft a global vaccine strategy that’s as focused, ambiti…

WASHINGTON -- I hereby nominate House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., for the James Buchanan prize, awarded for monumental smallness in a time demanding leadership. The 15th president, you might recall, was a politician who tried to take both sides on a matter of conscience and cho…

A ransomware attack on Scripps Health that began last weekend had the health care provider scrambling to regain access to vital electronic records that had been targeted by malicious software. Reports showed Scripps hospitals were getting by through use of “established back-up processes” to …
